Meeting of the SPECA Thematic Working Group on Gender and Economy

27 - 27 February 2017

Salle IX, Palais des Nations, Geneva, Switzerland

Theme: Sub-regional Cooperation for Gender Equality and Sustainability: Identifying Barriers and Defining Opportunities for the implementation of the 2030 Agenda in SPECA through gender lens

At the 11th session of the SPECA Governing Council (Ganja, Azerbaijan, 23 november 2016), participating countries of the United Nations Special Programme for the Economies of Central Asia (SPECA) reiterated their commitments to the Programme as a platform for sub-regional cooperation and achieving the Sustainable Developemnt Goals (SDGs). Gender equality was recognized as a specific focus of the SDGs through Goal 5, and as a cross-cutting issue to be addressed in the implementation of the other SDGs.

The meeting of the SPECA Thematic Working Group on Gender and Economy contributes to identifying barriers to the achievement of gender equality in the economic area and defining opportunities for women’s economic empowerment through gender-transformative economic policies and sub-regional cooperation in the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for sustainable development.
